I just love our peony bushes and this year they seem like they might be even more spectacular-bigger! bushier! more blossoms! Of course, maybe I just don’t remember last year very well. And even though a peony looks the same from year to year, I just can’t resist taking ever more pictures of them. I love the round buds.
The way they start to open up.
And then, when they are fully open, how lush and practically vulgar they are.
I also think we have some exceptional colors in ours. I am looking forward to planting a “raspberry sundae” peony in the fall. It is a pale pink one.
